Air Canada Using Virtual Reality to Showcase Boeing 787 Dreamliner

Air Canada is using virtual reality to showcase its Boeing 787 Dreamliner to travel agents and potential customers.

Through a fully immersive, interactive experience, users can explore all three cabins of service offered on board the aircraft, including enjoying a virtual International Business Class meal complete with wine in an Executive Pod.

With the headset on, and controls in hand, the journey begins with an overview of Air Canada's global route network followed by an exploration of the new Air Canada livery. On the trip users can experience all three cabins: Economy, Premium Economy or International Business. Amenity kits, an Air Canada enRoute magazine, tray tables, and in-flight entertainment are just some of the elements that can be touched, opened and moved, guided by an audio-based flight attendant. Interactive experiences such as dinner service add an extra element of fun.

More and more airlines, NTOs and hotels are using virtual reality to showcase their products and services to agents and potential customers. Click to enlarge.

"Virtual reality enables us to familiarize thousands of travel agents and potential customers with Air Canada's offerings through the magic of an interactive, virtual tour. We have already seen an increase in bookings since we began using this technology."
